Machine comprehension is one of the fundamental problem spaces in artificial intelligence research. Can we teach a machine to read, comprehend, and answer our questions? Recent advances in deep learning and natural language processing (NLP) have led to promising breakthroughs and novel AI models.
At Talla, we have been actively investigating the capabilities of machine comprehension. We have deployed several beta features that leverage these models in our product around content training, user question-answering, and unsupervised knowledge ingestion. In this series of blog posts, we aim to share our experiences and understanding of this space. In this post, we will provide a more in-depth overview of machine comprehension research.
